Let me gloat for a moment. I totally called it.
Awesome reveal at the end, with Aika pulling an enormous sword out of thin air. This is going to get good. I can’t believe they wasted the first half of the show on yaoi bait.
Despite the awesomeness of the ending, the first half of the episode was not all that exciting. More time travel stuff. This show is at its worst when it’s attempting to be logical, especially when their version of “logic” is quite strange at times.
The one part I did like about the time travel talk is how Hakaze calmly mentioned that she may be going back in time to kill Aika, a possibility that had crossed my mind as well last week. Mahiro and Yoshino accept this as well, and all of them do it without much complaint or concern. If it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen, seems to be their response.
